Most people familiar with life in the real world who can also think critically know two things about police: They are imperfect beings because they are human; and we desperately need them to maintain a civil society that is conducive to a high quality of life.
As imperfect beings, sometimes police officers break laws. And the vast majority of those who do are held accountable for them.
Take the officers who were involved in the George Floyd incident.
Maybe they ‘killed’ Floyd, maybe they didn’t — their trials will answer that question. But the fact is, they’re going to be made to be accountable, and that’s proof our system works pretty well.
Nevertheless, Left-wing reactionaries who run Minneapolis decided that defunding the department in the wake of the incident would ‘make things better.’
Americans who know better pointed their fingers and laughed at the idiots who said ‘defund’ the Minneapolis police because they knew what was going to happen.
Question: When you take cops away or neuter them so they can’t do that jobs (which is to enforce laws), will crime generally go up or down?
If you answered ‘up,’ you’re miles ahead of the lunatics running Minneapolis, because crime has increased in the city and the Marxist numbskulls are ‘shocked.’
Minneapolis City Council members expressed dismay at the rapid rise of crime haunting their constituents roughly two months after demonizing and voting to defund the city's police department.
Because who could have predicted criminals would suddenly become emboldened knowing that officials now view the police department as the real enemy?
At a meeting Wednesday to address the surge in violent crimes – which Fox News reports include daylight carjackings, robberies, assaults, and shootings – council members demanded to know why the police haven't been taking action.
'Residents are asking, 'Where are the police?’' a befuddled Jamal Osman, Council Member, asked.
Osman claimed phone calls to the police were going unanswered.
'That is the only public safety option [constituents] have at the moment. MPD. They rely on MPD,' he said. 'And they are saying they are nowhere to be seen.'
